A very nice way to spend the day when you can't get out and ride, thanks for the report.

A super good collection of photos! I've been waiting for a chance to make the 9 hour drive with at least 4 days off work... not all that easy to find.

I'd like to hear more about the overflow tank.

Rise of the angiosperms.........





















































Yes, he is on a trail designated for two-wheeled motorised travel. Do you love it?















No two springs the same----well I say spring, but the peak is mid july.

Next: the backyard. The 20 mile area around the house has some pretty fine riding.

Close to 10,000 people live in this valley, a few hundred have bikes ready to go, maybe 60 ride regularly, aside from the tracks. For the most part they stick close to home. Here's why:





























































almost home:

Great pics. My FJ lost its virginity in Idaho. 10 min outside Boise, got lost on some of those thousands of miles of trails, in the rain/mud/snow, with no map, no gas and no winch. Awesome. On a bike it would have been sublime. I think I know where I'm going when I get an SMT!

As the angiosperms awaken from their winter slumber, the mountainous watersheds are still melting away keeping our water levels high and a rain storm can raise water levels significantly within minutes!

uhoh7 was yanked down by a pissed off trout for disturbing his watering hole.



The water was frigid, at most, 40 degrees Fahrenheit...
sorry, but it was...



Good workout to prepare for a long summer!









Smile:



Time to dry out and try to warm up.

If you look close you can see I'm wearing shorts. A nasty thunderstorm loomed ahead of us. I almost went home, about 20 min. My socks were soaked. The word "hypothermia" flashed through my head.

We pressed on, hit a sunny patch, and I stole a layer. Then it was OK. A mistake (not having much extra) for the backyard only.

Bench pressing the KTM warmed me up a bit too.

Great photos and ride report.
